Doctor Amakiri was very kind as well as his nurse practitioners. He heard me out and solve my severe problems. He also has a good sense of humor. Total waiting time takes a bit but when he saw me he took his time and apologize for any inconvenience. I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Amakiri is an excellent doctor - (patient, understanding and has compassion) he is very caring and diligent in resolving your health issues whether it is a cold/allergy or something more serious.

Waited over an hour and half past appointment time to see him for a disability exam. He had absolutely no apology and went straight into barking orders rudely causing unnecessary pain during exam. I would say he is the most unprofessional provider I have ever dealt with and that is saying a lot being that I have seen medical providers in 4 different countries and worked in a clinic with doctors for the past 6 years.

I was not told he was not going to be here when I scheduled my appt. Saw his nurse practitioner. I was waiting in the room waiting 40 min before I saw her. Disappointed. Only second time here.
in El Paso, TX |
Was rude and didn't seem to care about why I was there in the first place. Was there for a second opinion and he claimed that because I didn't agree with my initial diagnosis from a different doctor he wouldn't fill out my FMLA paperwork. There were other issues at hand but I'd rather save my energy and not waste anymore time on him.
